Seahawks remain unbeaten

The St. Clare Walker Middle School soccer team improved to 5-0 with recent wins at Lancaster and Aylett Country Day School.

At Lancaster on October 3, both teams started aggressively and the Seahawks prevailed 8-0. “In our first half we had a lot of shots on goal but accuracy was not its best,” said Seahawks coach Eric Smith. “We were up at half and I had a control talk with my team at halftime. I told them we needed to control the ball and let the game happen naturally without pushing to make things happen.” 

Things really came together in the second half for the Seahawks. Wyatt Evans and Peyton Lambert each had 2 goals. With one goal apiece were Merek Hanscome, Carter Beam, Jordan Millen and Simon Larson, who also had 1 assist. Patrick Larson and Rowan Anderson both had 1 assist.

On October 5, the visiting Seahawks defeated Aylett Country Day School 2-0. “Aylett has a strong defense with a very good keeper and they added some great long ball attacks for this game,” said Smith. “We had to adjust our formation and counter their attack with solid defense.” 

The Seahawks first goal came from Patrick Larson who rebounded a deflected shot back into the net. “This gave us a little cushion and allowed us to relax and control the midfield better,” said Smith. “Our defense really did well on the long ball attack and started attacks of their own.” 

In the second half, the Seahawks played conservative and worked the clock with game management. Seahawk Lane Glasco won a battle at the 18 yard line and dropped a pass to Wyatt Evans who took a first touch and then drove a great ball past the keeper for final goal. 
Seahawk defense was controlled by Jordan Millen, Carter Beam, and Tavish Anderson. Midfield was controlled by Tanner St. Louis, Wyatt Evans, Merek Hanscom and Thomas Wilson.
